6th March 2021

 Weather: SSE force 0/1

A morning visit found bird finding limited to mostly wintering individuals. The highlight of the day was undoubtably a Grey Wagtail that came down to feed on the island.

 A couple of Pied Wagtails were noted, also 3 Blackbirds ( 2male and a female). Two locally wandering Canada Geese made the list, while potential breeders included 22 Linnets, 6 Meadow and 2 Rock Pipits. Brent numbered 288 and 3 Mallards were on the pond. Waders logged included 80 Sanderling, 4 Bar-tailed Godwits and 10 Purple Sandpipers. A scan of the 250 or so Common Scoters in sight failed to identify anything rarer.
